Node JS itself has been the event-driven Javascript runtime environment, used by most developers to build real-time applications and websites, irrespective of the complexity level. The most crucial thing that attracts everyone about it is the capability of asynchronous input and output. It purposely strives to optimise the web apps using different input/output operations. Also, importantly, it is both a server-side and client-side scripting language. While in the server-side, it executes the JS code, on the client-side, it embeds the scripts in HTML of the webpage after they are written.

Out and out, Node JS has proven to the befitting server ruling among many large corporations with high-tech and engineered web solutions. Here’s a comprehensive of list of some major Node JS frameworks which are most promising at present to build flattering web solutions.

#1 Socket.io

A Node.js server framework, it is quite popular for allowing event-driven communication between the clients and the server. Client-side or server-side, it is capable of working on both the libraries. Thus, it is greatly suitable for developing large-scale real-time web apps.

#2 Express.js

Express.js is one of the reliable frameworks that support creating both web and mobile applications. By assisting the development of APIs (Application Programming Interfaces), it empowers the developers to build apps regardless of the complexities, feature-set and targeted devices/browsers.

#3 Derby

It is one of the MVC frameworks under the Node.js cover and supports both the client-side and server-side scripting. Deployed for modern mobile applications as well as web applications, it is basically the key attraction for many developers because it uses a server that results in fast page loads, meeting of search engine requirements, HTML templates etc.

#4 Hapi.js

Only used for creating robust application programming interfaces, Hapi.js is a multifaceted full-stack development framework under Node.js. It has a powerful inbuilt plugin system that provides developers with some core advantages while building the applications and services software. Some of them are input validation, implement caching, error rectifications and configuration-based functionality.

#5 Koa

A next-gen framework for development in Node.js, Koa is used for delivering web applications besides APIs. The reason for its popularity? It enables the use of Generators to avoid using any callback. So, this empowers the developers to fix any errors immediately.

#6 Sails.js

This is an enterprise-level framework that facilitates the development of large-scale applications using custom APIs. Inspired by other widely popular frameworks like Ruby on Rails, it has a creative spirit that gives out more data-centric experience for every application. Moreover, Sails is much-demanded apps which work real-time and need functions like chats, location tracking.

This list is perhaps endless. Node.js has been experiencing a huge growth over the past years, with a rising number of frameworks. However, each having extensive advantages, ease of installation and rich features, you need to have a brainstorming session beforehand to decide which framework suits your website or app requirements.
